My understanding is that the 'Native LAN Manager' field is supposed to
indicate what type of server is running. Because jCIFS has no facility
to determine if it's Windows, Samba, or whatever, I punted. Thus 'foo'. I
see no reason to change it.

A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
